We suggest a quantum stabilization method for theSU(2) σ-model, based on the constant-cutoff limit of the cutoff quantization method developed by Balakrishnaet al., which avoids the difficulties with the usual soliton boundary conditions pointed out by Iwasaki and Ohyama. We investigate the baryon numberB = 1 sector of the model and show that after the collective coordinate quantization it admits a stable soliton solution which depends on a single dimensional arbitrary constant. We then study strong and electromagnetic properties of the Λ(1405) hyperon in the bound-state approach to theSU(3)-soliton model for the hyperons, withSU(3)-symmetry breaking. We calculate the strong coupling constantgΛ*NK;, the magnetic moment of Λ*, the mean square radii, and the radiative decay amplitudes. Finally we compare the present results with those obtained using other models and with the available empirical data. We show that there is a general qualitative agreement between our results and the results of other models and available empirical data, except for the Λ*πΣ coupling, which, as in the case of the complete Skyrme model, vanishes in the second-order approximation of the kaon fluctuations used in this work.
